What is HCS and TxHmL?

Home and Community  Based Services and Texas Home Living Services are Medicaid Waiver programs approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services that offers individuals and their families  an alternative to institutional care.  These programs are administered by Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services and operated by a statewide network of providers. 

HCS and TxHmL services are individualized, community-based, consumer-driven and responsive to changing needs.  Individual choice is the driving force of the HCS and TxHmL programs.  By encouraging personal choices, the HCS and TxHmL programs empower its consumers to lead lives of independence and self-determination, to achieve inclusion into the community and to affirm the rights, dignity, and respect of each person served.

Why HCS?  Why TxHmL?

HCS differs from other community-based Medicaid programs in principle and practice.

  • It is based on a belief system-not a set of regulations.
  • Its program model is the family, not the hospital, nursing home or institution.
  • Its driving force is individual choice.
  • Its services are customized to individual needs.
  • It is committed to empowering its consumers to enter fully and independently into the life of the community.
  • It limits alternate living arrangements to three or four persons with disabilities who choose to live together.
